Pick up a useful skill while traveling in Vietnam with a fun cooking class in the heart of Saigon. Explore Vietnamese cooking tradition and learn classic recipes to take home. Choose between two options: Half Day Tour For Locals or a Hands On Cooking Class available on mornings, afternoons, or evenings. The half day tour starts at a local market, where together with the local chef you will learn how to pick the right type of ingredients for authentic Vietnamese dishes. Your hands on cooking class happens under the watchful eye of an experienced chef, where you'll learn how to make authentic Vietnamese cuisine! When everything is ready, you get to taste the dishes you have prepared during a relaxing dinner with everyone in the class. If your time in Ho Chi Minh is limited, go for the shorter option, skipping the market visit and getting straight to cooking.

Get your own cooking station inside the cooking studio, and watch as the professional chef demonstrates, with great detail, all that you need to do to prepare every dish.

What people are saying about Cooking Classes in Ho Chi Minh City
It was quite costly but definitely worth the experience. We learned many dishes and the lady was patient in explaining the different ingredients to us and we were able to cook with ease and without much constraint. The food was amazing and the lady was knowledgeable and well prepared. I had a great time there with my friends and left the place with a full stomach and happy smile on our faces.
Highly recommended wet market tour and cooking class!

During the cooking class she explain step by step for us to follow and also explain every ingredients she used and what other ingredients we can use for our dishes.
Every of the participants are entitled for a free dessert - passionfruit custard
I really enjoy the class 👍🤗😄
Had a really fun experience with Chef Lee. We made 3 dishes. First was the fresh spring roll with pork and shrimp, with hoisin and peanut butter dip. Second, pumpkin flower with fish paste. Third, lemongrass chicken with coconut water on top of rice. Everything was delicious, and you’d get a certificate and recipe of all the dishes after the class. Plus points for the really cute cat of Chef Lee. Overall, highly recommended activity in Saigon.
The class with morning market tour was amazing as Ms Li introduced the produce and Vietnamese herbs in detailed and easy to understand! In the class, she also explain the cooking method in systematic way and we cooked 1 appetiser, salad and noodle! The taste was good! But only one minor thing is, the knives are blunt and it could be better as we are having difficulties to cut the vege. Highly recommended to join this tour and my mom enjoyed it a lot! The recipes received were very presentable!
Well organized class at a nice venue. We were put on the patio outside with a fan since the room inside was overbooked. It was fine, though it got a bit hot when using the wok. Teacher was nice and helpful especially with my 11 year old son. Food was great quality and delicious. Was stuffed to the gills. We left with a lovely set of recipes to try at home. Very happy we did this class!
Definitely a 5 Star experience!
Highly recommended for novice and expert cooks who wish to learn how to make authentic Vietnamese cuisine. Bong was really patient and speaks fluent English.
The local market tour was short but overall pace was just right for even the less experienced cooks. We have sufficient time to rest and relax with a refreshing drink after the tour and we have just enough time to enjoy each dish after we finish cooking. The ingredients were prepared well in advanced and cling wrapped. Overall cleanliness is Good.
Love the decor around the place which we had many memorable photos. At the end of the class we were presented with nicely printed recipes and certificates as well. Extremely thoughtful. Thank you!
Just remember to take a light breakfast before your class :)
